It's international #IPADay!

#IPADay first happened last year (pubs, bars, and people all over the World get on the IPA and tweet about it using the hash tag #IPADay - very simple), and whilst there doesn't seem to be quite the furore this time around, there's still plenty happening around Leeds for IPA lovers to sink their teeth into.

Friends of Ham will have seven IPA's on draft plus around 18 bottles in the fridges. The draft beers are down as being:

  • Gadds Left Coast Conspiracy
  • The Kernel Centennial Columbus
  • De Molen Vuur and Vlam
  • Ilkley The Chief
  • Magic Rock Human Cannonball
  • Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest
  • Mikkeller Sort Gul*
That Mikkeller would certainly be a highlight for me but *it's still touch and go as to whether it will arrive in time. That said, the rest of the list looks quality throughout so plenty to be going at - Vuur & Vlam is a personal favourite so that's probably my pick of the bunch.

Oh and a little tip, get a taster tray of 3 or 6 third pints and they knock 10% off the price of the beers. It works great as you save money no matter what the cost of the beer.

This is where's I'll be drinking tonight.


If you're over in Bradford then The Sparrow is well worth a visit. Love that place.

Here's what they've got on:


  • The Kernel Summit IPA
  • Magic Rock Brewing Magic 8 Ball
  • BrewDog Everything In Its Right Place
  • Thornbridge Brewery Jaipur

  • Black Jack Aces High
  • The Sparrow / Saltaire Black Throat Black IPA
  • Quantum Brewing Co. Brambling Cross
Plus bottles such as Odell Brewing Co Myrcenary & Victory Brewing Company Hop Wallop, plus the usuals from Brooklyn Brewery, Sierra Nevada, Goose Island Beer Co., Flying Dog Brewery.


Any other bars doing anything for #IPADay?
